This is a great wrench for the price. I only use YHM hand guards so I haven't any problems fitting the barrel nut, nor did I have a problem with it slipping of the jammer nut. My only complaint is that it could be a little longer to get a little extra leverage when tightening to the next gas tube hole per YHM instructions. I had to use rubber mallet to line up the gas tube hole after getting it hand tighten.
Lugs are a little snug going into the barrel nut, and the spanner for the jam nut seems to wanna slip out if you're not careful, all in all a good product and it gets the job done.
It does the job, but could be better. Pins don't line up very well with the barrel nut. Had to coax it with a rubber mallet. The wring wrench end slips out of the ring grooves easily and can scratch up the finish.
The wrench fit my YHM barrel nut perfect however took some modification to remove the existing barrel nut
You really need this tool if you want to assemble this handguard correctly. It was a solid tool and worked great. I wish I could have just rented it seeing this is the only AR I will probably build. :-)
a must have for installing yhm barrel nuts. i damaged one barrel nut with a standard armorers wrench
Heavy built, well constructed, fit well. A must have for the YHM free float handguard. A great product. Thank you Primary Arms
I bought this tool in advance of upgrading an AR-15 with standard M4 hand guards to a free float system. It is a pretty straight forward tool that is designed and manufactured by YHM, the manufacturer of the free float hand guard, so I have no concern as to it functioning as advertised. Thanks PA for making it available and charging 25% less than everyone else. That said, I have no reason to give it any but a 5 star rating.
Worked perfect, GREAT item
works as advertised
I noticed YHM's jamb nuts measure 1.98" which is the same as the generic hand guard on the Colt LE6900. I've read a lot of complaints from people wanting to put a new hand guard on the LE6900 but not being able to get the stock guard off. Seated the YHM Handguard Wrench on the jamb nut, gave it a bit of a tap with a plastic hammer and it backed right off. Installing a new YHM Diamond Series hand guard was just as simple. Great tool, just make sure you have it set firmly in one of the four groves on the jamb nut.
Excellent part. Quick shipping. Good price
Good tool for install of YHM handguard.
This tool works great.
nice, heavy, works great.
This wrench is heavy duty and works WAY better than those cheap wrenches offered on Amazon that break the first time you use them. You get what you pay for when you purchase tools to work on your guns so don't cut corners by trying to get by with cheap junk tools.
As I needed! As soon as my .300 SOTA Barrel arrives I'm sure it will work great!
The wrench is very simple yet extremely strong. A solid piece of equipment that provides a firm bite when used properly. I have nothing negative to say. This is the correct tool for the job and works as it should.
This should be included with the hand guard. It's thick and beefy and fits
Wrench is required for installation and removal of YHM free float hand guards. It is of quality construction.
If you have more that one rifle with a YHM tube on it, you will need one of these. Otherwise, it is almost impossible to line up the gas tube hole in the upper with the barrel nut. This tool saves time, but not really worth the price unless you have more than one YHM handguard.
Received this product fast and the handguard is of excellent quality.
I purchased an American Defense mount from AP. Found the price very competitive and am very happy with the fast shipping.
I wish it wasn't required for YHM forearm installations, but that is not for this review. Worked as advertised without an issue.
I got this because I was told I have to. Regardless I saved enough on the free float gaurd to pay for it, and the tool itself is great quality. YHM is becoming one of my favorite manufactures.
Shipping was faster than expected and allowed me to finish my most recent build quickly.
It is a well made and solid wrench. That's about all that can be said for an item that is very specific in use.
Why not cut it so a Torque Wrench can be used with it as also a Barrel Wrench? (Which I did)
Product is a heavy duty 3 pin spanner wrench....works...how much can you say about a chunck of steel. PA had the best price and I have used them many times before. Good folks
As advertised. Not much to say about a tool that does what its supposed to.
Great Fit on my S&W mp15 sport
Just what I needed to give my AR that finished look and feel,fast delivery from Primary Arms makes it easy to spend more for that quality touch!!!!Thank you PA,I will be back!!!!
Does exactly what it is supposed to do.
Fast shipping and a very good price . Even with them being about 30 minutes from my house it was still cheeper then having to drive there . And I only had a one day wait . Kinda hard to beat that .
Solid tool that works great with YHM guard.
Yes this the first YHM parts that I have purchased and by far it will not be the last.Aolt of it was the company that sent it to me.The price was great the delivery was on time. Paul
I had questions so I called Primary Arms on the phone and received excellent information and advice. I did not know that I would even need this wrench. Thank you very much for the assistance. TF
great seller fast shipper A++++
It works for me and works well. As always, Primary Arms had the best price and ships fast.
This wrench worked great.. It is a must have when installing the YHM barrel nut.
Not only is it the required tool to install and remove YHM handguard tension nut. It is invaluable at removing stubborn free float tube/barrel nuts, like those secured with red Locktite by a certian manufacturer... heat it with a torch and pound it with a mallet, the YHM Wrench worked like a champ! Excellent tool.
Made it possible to get the delta ring off with out cutting it off!!
Great wrench; would definitely recommend if you buy one of the YHM rails. Makes installation very easy.
I have to say that dealing with your company has been nothing but a pleasure. I can honestly say I never fill these things out and very rarely comment on a company.But in this case I must. I am a retired police officer and I received nothing but professional service. From the email response to the items in stock and fast delivery. You guys are the best and will defineatly order from you again. Thank you so much and keep up the great work. What else can I say.
Very thick piece of metal. Wish it had a slot for a rachet to torque
